quotes from books

"a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
-from the way of lao-tzu
"i am still learning about love. i thought i understood it - not just mother love but the love for one's parents, for one's husband, and for ones laotong {old friend}. I've experienced the other types of love - pity love, respectful love, and gratitude love. but looking at our secret fan with its messages written between snow flower and me over many years, i see that i didn't value the most important love - deep-heart love."
-from snow flower and the secret fan by lisa see
